Costa Rica 'on a Shoestring'

This tropical country with its enormous variety of animals and plants is known as the garden of Central America. A large part of Costa Rica remains impenetrable jungle, wherein probably lies the reason why so many species thrive there. But responsibly-managed tourism now allows you to observe smoking volcanoes and enjoy beautiful palm beaches on a journey that is becoming widely regarded as the ultimate experience for nature-lovers.
